On May 12, 2015, Serena Williams (41) had a chance encounter with Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian (40) during her trip to Rome. And within a year, the pair went from dating to exchanging vows at a star-studded wedding.
Since then, the power couple has been going strong for eight years, and according to Ohanian, it's all thanks to the fact that they continue to show up for one another. In an open letter about his marriage, published in Glamour, he wrote, "I think if you were to ask my wife, or many other people in relationships, it’s often the simpler things that are the most important. You have to show up. You have to be supportive."
The pair now share two daughters: 5-year-old Olympia, and their newborn, Adira. In celebration of their growing family, we're taking a closer look at Williams and Ohanian's relationship timeline, from their red carpet debut to their star-studded wedding.
